    I keep telling everyone that Scotland should really get independent and join the Nordics. Bashing swedes for a family fun on a Sunday demonstrates the right mindset. :whistle:

    (whoop whoop, interfering in sensitive politics of your hosting country, insulting someone purely based on their nationality and endorsing violence in two sentences. Must be a personal best. Sorry if anyone got offended. I only intended to offend...

    Will stop now. ;))

                  Thanks. it is a 1964 roadster customized. We just got back from Syracuse, NY where she was part of the select 6 in the Winfield. her competition was a Grade 8 and a Riddler. She did get lots of woos and awes. If your on facebook she has her own facebook to follow her places. Look up Sasha Show Car to be invited in. Last January 2020 she got top trophy in Hamburg, NY. we have been to various states of 16 hour drives, staying at hotels. Meeting lots of awesome other car enthusiasts. We even have a judge who follows us about. August we will be in York, PA, then looking at a show in Vermont in October.

                          I watch a bit of TV if i have the time in between doing everything else. I walk the Babes seperatly, tried taking them together a few weeks ago it was terrible trying to get them out. Berry thought that he was going in the car.
